OK, so this all sounds fantastic, but let's not forget that RTX isn't just for ray tracing alone, because the platform still relies on sophisticated rasterisation techniques and everything Nvidia includes on its previous GPUs.
Shares of Nvidia rose about 3% following the announcements. The GeForce RTX 2070 Founders Edition will be priced at $599 USD, followed by the RTX 2080 Founders Edition at $799 USD, and the RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition retailing for $1,199 USD.
NVIDIA is working with developers such as EA, Epic Games, Square Enix on games with ray tracing. The RTX 2080 drops performance to 8 Giga Rays per second, 60T RTX-OPS, and a 8GB frame buffer, and it will start at $699 excluding tax. And, thanks to the company's new Turing hardware, they're just as insane powerful as you'd expect. Along with the usual speed and enhanced graphics that entails, this also means GeForce RTX supports real-time ray tracing in supported games - including Battlefield 5, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Metro Exodus.
